Per Ms. Layton's daughter Susie on Twitter:
I have only two or three of Edith's books, but I thoroughly enjoyed them.
One of the things I've missed since leaving RWA is the opportunity to visit with my fellow authors. Edith and I chatted for several hours in the lobby of the Marriott Marquis in New York at an RWA conference, about writing, about Richard III, and about politics.
I'm not a huge fan of the Regency sub-genre, but I found Edith's books more than a cut above. I look forward to picking up at least a few of them as ebooks.
